PRECIOUS CARAT Lip Gloss Jewel - $40.00
At first glance what would you think this item above is? A rare jewel diamond perhaps that costs almost as much as a pair of Louboutins & a Balenciaga bag? Well, you'd be close - but no stiletto. This is actually a brand new lipgloss offered by Lancome cosmetics. The container shaped like a precious cut diamond is actually made of Swarovski Crystals. On the inside, prepare to open up to a transparent gloss with a bit of sparkle that can be worn alone or with a lipstick for that jewel-like finish. This precious jewel will run you $40 - kinda pricey for just a lipgloss but hey it surely beats going bankrupt to get the real diamonds right?
My third eye - which I often refer to as my "fashion eye" has been noticing a cute trend for arm jewelry recently. I am morbidly obsessed with bracelets & bangles. So obsessed that I spent $62 on my last arm accessory splurge. What, you thought I was joking? lol. Anywho, I first noticed the animal bangles in one of my many frequented trips to my beloved Urban Outfitters. I tried on the white tiger bracelet which was way too cute & fit great but I promised myself I wouldn't buy anything that day. lol. So today, I decided to browse on over to the wonderful site of that known as, Net A Porter to see if any higher end designers have gotten into the rumble of the jungle too. My finding results = they sure have! I saw a designer by the name of Kenneth Jay Lane (whom I've never heard of) who had some gorgeous animal bangles. Check them out.

THIS IS ONE CRACKED MIRROR THAT WON'T GIVE YOU BAD LUCK.
Hi my fashionable lovies! New category for the site, my yummy item of the day. For today's pick, I saw this unique clutch on one of my fave fashion writers Kristopher Dukes blog. (She always posting the hautest accessories & shoes) I saw this clutch and it was love at first sight. How genius is this design, like seriously? I've never seen a cracked mirror look so fab. It screams "IM A BAD ....." you know the rest. If you can afford it, get it. I'll be adding this one to my Christmas wish list.

I just love the British fashion scene. Actually, I love fashion from all over the world. It's always interesting to see how similar or different fashion & trends are on the other side of the world. Most times, I'm usually inspired with my own looks from my fashionistas overseas! Last night was a HUGE night in British fashion as the British Fashion Awards took place in the UK. Awards were presented to those who have made the most outstanding contributions to British clothing design in the past year. The awards include that of British Designer of the Year, as well as awards to the 'most-fashionable' celebrities in other various fields. The awards are organized by the British Fashion Council.

How can you not love Barbie? She's every girl's favorite childhood playmate. You know you wanted to be just like her when you grew up, I did. With that California girl spray on tan, that beyond perfect hourglass figure and fly celebrity like wardrobe, girls all over the world would dream of living the life of Barbie.
Earlier this year, we saw the blonde bombshell come to life with MAC cosmetics with Barbie Loves MAC. A limited edition color collection with an array of vibrant pink and nude products from blushes to lip glosses, all featuring that unforgettable Barbie logo.
As if that wasn't adorable enough, my beloved Patricia Field (Emmy Award winning stylist, best known from her Sex & The City fame) is setting out to bring us Barbie like we've never seen her before with her own collection of Barbie inspired apparel & accessories. I took a quick glance at the collection on Patricia's website and I love it. My favorite items are the halter dresses. They are the hauteness and are in true Barbie form & fashion.
